While Covid19 vaccinations are no longer mandatory, Choice Support still recognises the vaccine to be the best line of defence against Covid 19. Some of our services still require staff to be fully vaccinated – the position which you are applying for is not one of those services. As such you are not required to be vaccinated prior to your start date and whilst we encourage all our staff to be vaccinated, the decision to have the vaccine remains your choice.
